Course Overview
Hi everyone. I'm Dan Lachance, and welcome to my course, Configuring Windows Server 2019 EFS and BitLocker Encryption. An important aspect of hardening your computing environment, whether on‑premises or in the cloud, is protecting data at rest through encryption and ensuring that the bootup process for computers is not compromised. In this course, you will learn how to secure data at rest using EFS and BitLocker. You will also learn the role that TPM and Secure Boot play in validating machine bootup integrity in Windows Server 2019. Some of the major topics that we will cover include protecting data at rest using Encrypting File System, using TPM with BitLocker to secure the boot process, and protecting data at rest using BitLocker. By the end of this course, you will understand how to enhance stored data security and the machine startup process for devices in your organization. You will acquire the skills necessary to complete these tasks using GUI, as well as command line tools. I hope you'll join me to learn about Configuring Windows Server 2019 EFS and BitLocker Encryption, here at Pluralsight.
